Decent photo of the 1922 Army football team from Spalding's Army football guide. Rabble, what do you know about this team?

The 1922 Army Football Team finished undefeated that year, with ties against Yale at the Yale Bowl on October 28 of that year ( 0-0) and Notre Dame on the Plain on November 11 (7-7).
They beat my alma mater, St. Bonaventure, :? on November 4th in their only meeting ever, (53-0) :roll:
Charles Daly was the coach who became a college Hall of Famer later on.
Really four tremendous players on that squad

#1 Gus Farwick
#9 Bill Wood (later the Army head coach (1938-1940)
#16 Waldemar (Fritz) Breidster, the Captain
#17 George Symthe
Not sure but Ellinger was later an assistant under Blaik in the 1940's

I believe that Edgar Garbisch was an All American for the 1922 team.
